According to a survey by Syneron Medical, About 75% of women report being unsatisfied with the appearance of their skin, the concerns range from wrinkles to rough texture.
One of the most effective treatments we usually recommend to our patients is Sublative Rejuvenation. It is a great treatment because of the numerous skin conditions it can improve, it works on all skin tones and types, and virtually pain-free with no downtime.
It is neither laser- nor light-based. Instead, it harnesses the power of fractionated bi-polar radiofrequency (also known as gentle energy currents) to deeply penetrate the skin and stimulate collagen production beneath the surface while keeping the outer layer of skin intact. Sublative produces the same kind of results as aggressive procedures without the pain, downtime, side effects or cost. There is no visible injury to the skin’s outer layers. Focused energy currents are applied to the skin in a matrix, bypassing upper layers of the skin and stimulating the natural production of collagen at the source. This “resets” the body’s regenerative process, which is why results continue to improve over time. Gentle heat is delivered at the underlying connective tissue where the skin joins the muscle—the same layer that is tightened during a conventional facelift. This tissue is gently heated, causing it to contract and eventually lift. As a result, formerly loose skin appears subtly tightened.
Sublative is an intelligent technology. We are able get feedback on how the energy is impacting the underlying layers of skin on a screen during the procedure, so the treatment can be precisely targeted. Radio frequency waves penetrate the skin through small pin holes to stimulate collagen growth from the inside.
This treatment is appropriate for a broad range of patients, from mature women who desire a lifted look to 30-somethings who want to take their beauty routine above and beyond antioxidant serums and creams. A significant number of women are starting their anti-aging efforts sooner in an effort to slow the inevitable.
In your 20s Active oil production gives skin its dewy glow but also causes breakouts and, as a result, acne scars. Wearing protective armor, such as sunscreen and eye cream, and adopting a healthy lifestyle are the first steps toward preserving a youthful appearance. Avoid partying into the late hours, smoking, sun tanning and yo-yo dieting—the cumulative effects will show up later in life.
In your 30s The skin is slower to “bounce back” after a night without sleep or too much alcohol. Collagen production, cell turnover and oxygen flow have slowed and it’s starting to show in the form of dullness and fine creases. Other physical changes include enlarged pores, deeper expression lines, broken capillaries and puffiness or dark circles under the eyes. At this stage skincare becomes more specialized but are incapable of doing the “heavy lifting.”
In your 40s It suddenly takes a lot more work to look the way you want. Once women hit 40, it’s easy to tell who’s been taking care of their face and who hasn’t. Skin is drier, thinner and less firm because lipid and estrogen levels have dropped. Loss of elasticity means skin is losing its bounce and fluctuating hormones can still cause occasional breakouts.
In your 50s + It’s never too late to start taking care of your skin. At this stage, topical treatments – combined with a healthy lifestyle – still have plenty of wrinkle-fighting promise. However, they can’t replace doctor’s office procedures when it comes to eliminating serious sun damage and sagging.
